INDIANA JONES 5 Adds Another Key Piece In AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Actor Thomas Kretschmann

Following Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen, Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm have now cast Thomas Kretschmann in an undisclosed role in James Mangold's Indiana Jones 5 starring Harrison Ford!

The Wrap is reporting that German actor Thomas Kretschmann (Avengers: Age of Ultron; Penny Dreadful: City of Angels) has joined the cast of Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm's upcoming fifth installment in the long-running Indiana Jones franchise.

For the time being, further details on his key role are being kept under wraps, but he joins a cast headlined by Academy Award-nominee Harrison Ford (Blade Runner 2049Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) as the titular archeologist. Golden Globe-winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Solo: A Star Wars StoryFleabag) and BAFTA Film Award-nominee Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange; Hannibal) both also recently joined the cast in undisclosed roles. 

2x Academy Award-nominee James Mangold (Logan; Ford v Ferrari) will be in the director's chair, taking the reins from 3x Academy Award-winner Steven Spielberg (Jurassic Park; Ready Player One), who directed the previous four installments.

Jonathan Kasdan (Solo: A Star Wars StoryThe First Time) - the son of Raiders of the Lost Ark writer Lawrence Kasdan - was recently brought in to touch up the script, following original screenwriter David Koepp (Jurassic Park; Spider-Man) exiting the project. 

Spielberg will executive produce with Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel serving as producers.

Indiana Jones 5 is tentatively scheduled to hit theaters on July 29, 2022.
